Modi's mother, brothers watch ceremony on TV
Narendra Modi's mother Hiraben and his brothers Monday evening watched live telecast of him being sworn-in as India's new prime minister at Rashtrapati Bhavan.
Modi's mother stays with his elder brother Soma, a retired health department official who now runs an old-age home in Ahmedabad.
Modi's younger brothers, Prahlad, who owns a shop in Ahmedabad, and Pankaj, a clerk in the information department of the Gujarat government in Gandhinagar, also watched the ceremony on television.
Modi sought his mother's blessings after the Lok Sabha election results and before he left for Delhi for the swearing-in ceremony.
